Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G Prime Lens is compact, lightweight and packs a punch in terms of features. The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G Prime Lens has image stabilization not only that, this lens also comes equipped with a background blur feature and works extremely well, even in poor lighting, with the maximum aperture of f/1.8.

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G Prime Lens Features:

Power rests in your palms. Shoot high quality pictures with incredible clarity, with its normal angle view. What’s more, the rounded 7 blade diaphragm opening makes out of focus elements appear natural in the image.

The lens built is decent and it comes with a 52mm filter groove. It also contains a lens hood to take care of sun flares. It is an AF-S lens which means it comes with a AF motor built in and will auto focus on the Nikon D3xxx, D5xxxx series cameras.

If you own a D7xxx series camera, a D90 or an FX camera, you might look for the cheaper 35mm f/1.8D lens that doesn’t have a built in auto focus motor.

Now coming to the picture quality, it’s nothing short of amazing. With the large f/1.8 aperture, you can capture photos in low light even though the AF tends to struggle a bit under very low lighting conditions (you can fine tune that with Manual Focus Override). It produces decent bokeh at f/1.8 and is very sharp at around f/4. The lens comes with a switch to toggle between M/A (Auto Focus with Manual override) and Manual Focus.
